Welcome to the official website of the Lions Club of Liskeard
The Liskeard Lions have been serving Liskeard and district for over 43 years. We run events throughout the year raising funds for local, national and international causes.
What we do
Common sense and a sense of humour are two traits found in abundance among members of Lions clubs, whatever the weather.
Our main activities are:
We have a catering van with which we support various events throughout the year
Supporting Community Activities
When it comes to making things happen in local communities, we assist with road closures, traffic control, marshaling, car parking and provide catering facilities as well as putting on our own events. We help other organisations with their activities and may reciprocate to help ours.
Lions Clubs International
The Lions Club of Liskeard is part of Lions Clubs International which is the largest service club organisation with 1.4 million members and over 46,000 clubs around the world. Lions support good causes in their area with every penny raised going to those good causes.
